Scottsquared This was my first Phish show, and I'm just so glad it was. This was definitely a "greatest hits" show if you will, starting with the classic Curtain With opener. Then I heard what became one of my favorite Phish ballads, Fast Enough For You, which is actually kind of rare. Not a bustout necessarily, but is consistently a one-timer on every tour. Good Buried Alive, then a "goofy" song with Camel Walk, but very funky. Camel Walk has definitely become a bigger jam vehicle in more recent shows. Then, a really clean Reba, which was just great because at the time, Reba was one of the only Phish songs I really knew, followed by the classic rocker Sample in A Jar, which I also knew. It was also cool to see Trey switch guitars for Pebbles and Marbles at my very FIRST show because he only ever switches guitars for that song or for a popped string (which I also witnessed on 1/11/20 with TAB at the Capitol Theater). My first Page song was Tela, and it still holds up as my favorite Page vocal song to this day. Next was Mango Song, and I knew it was a heady bustout the moment I heard it just based on the crowd's reaction and the goofy lyrics. Then came Driver, which was a nice display of Tom Marshall's subtle lyrics. My first Phish set closed with a loud, heated jam in the form of Bowie. They opened Set 2 with a very experimental, free-form Mr. Completely>Twenty Years Later jam, followed by a screeching BBFCFM. Then we got the fan-favorite Tweezer, which my dad really enjoyed before what was probably the most heartfelt song played that night, Shade. Then came Most Events Aren't Planned, a nice mellow follow-up, and Makisupa Policeman. This time, Trey said "So I could hear Mike play bass!" The show ended with a fiery Chalk Dust Torture>Suzy Greenberg and a fantastic 3 song encore. Great show!
